The Specific Terms of Pontoon Card Game - Pontoon Glossary

Good news! You should not be British to play Pontoon!

Pontoon is the British variant of blackjack, so it is not surprising to know that Pontoon has some specific blackjack terms which Englishmen use to play it. As we know, there are some differences between American English and British English languages and, for example, American “apartment” will be “flat” in Britain as well as British “trousers” will be “pants” in America.

Do not be afraid: everything is not as awful as it seems to be; just try to remember some blackjack terms related to Pontoon and you will never be confused at the table while playing it.

Let us make a short glossary of main blackjack terms with their definitions and pontoon variants of translation:

  1. Blackjack (Natural) – the card hand of two cards which total is 21 (an Ace + 10’s or any Face card: Jack, Queen or King).
  2. Blackjack = Pontoon actually

  3. Hit – to take more cards in order to improve your total.
  4. Hit = Twist at Pontoon

  5. Stand – to take no more cards if a player considers his hand to be good enough to win.
  6. Stand = Stick at Pontoon

  7. Double Down – to ask one more card by doubling your initial bet. When a player does this step he has no right to take any more cards.

Double Down = Buy at Pontoon

As you can see, the glossary for Pontoon is not very big and difficult to remember; all other terms of Pontoon are the same with ones of American blackjack. Well, sometimes a dealer is called to be a banker at Pontoon but this is more or less understandable without any definitions, is not it? Moreover, if you have learnt all the rules and strategy of Pontoon, it will definitely be very easy for you to learn these few words.
